the bluest cloud, Poetry by Vivien Lin

WILDsound Festival

Genre: death

the bluest cloud
by Vivien Lin

you came and woke me early today

blue traces in your hair

said the wind had smelt just like the sun

said I could find you there

your sunbeam hands tipped them forward the

driftwood of your conscience

ruckled midnight words of the absurd

borderline of nonsense

you are and will be the greatest thing

I lend my night sky to

all my moonlit sighs of dawn’s first light

they all belong to you

you are enthralled by refulgent flames

planets away from me

laughing the records of ’94

your voice above the keys

glass misted with the breath of a boy

a whisper from the breeze

the parts of me that fail to reach you

meander in the sea

Halloween Memories, Poetry by Joe Ouellette

WILDsound Festival

Genre: Horror, Holiday

Halloween Memories
by Joe Ouellette

North Winds drive Indigo clouds taking bites out of a ripe pearl moon.
Crisp salads of autumn leaves peppered with road dust
and salted with early snow dress the road.
Porches in glowing pumpkin yellow corn stalks and hay bales
Staging this night of innocent disbelief.

A joyous man with swaying farm lantern
shepherds laughing children in castoffs
Riotous patchworks of fabric, texture and color.
Running house to house.
Faces hidden.
Flashing eyes fool no one.

Tribute demanded in shy and halting style,
freely given accompanied by Shakespearian
“who’s this” and “oh your scary”!
This joyful extortion of bounty,
This wonderful sharing of the night.
Sense the counterpoint of fearful dress and crystal ringing voices
The tingling serendipity of a child’s delight!

Home now… run! The sack is full
Cold and windy evenings build the chill
Only warm milk, a throw and…

Flame, Poetry by Carolyn Hucker

WILDsound Festival

Genres: Love, Desire

Flame
by Carolyn Hucker

You fold me in gentle arms
Warm and loving

Your breath on my skin,
Your heart beats as wild as my own

We move as one
Forgetting the world –
We do not need it
It holds nothing but memory.
Memory is nothing but the past
And we do not need the past
We have now and forever.

Skin to skin burning
Soul to soul flaming
Sun bright eternal
And glorious

Demons, Poetry by Casiar Meloy

WILDsound Festival

Genre: Dark, Culture, Humanity

Demons
by Casiar Meloy

Gazing into the open gate of hell

the literal abyss of Hades

With its jagged canines from the ground clenched in meeting

of the stalactites trickling down an acidic saliva

in motion to bite with the deadliest mastication

The acrid stench invading the lungs with every stagnant breath

lingering close to penetrate nostrils

Trying to suffocate the mind into action, panic

Time is endless and doesn’t exist

bearing the illusion of importance in the insignificant

The mouth is hungry for raw flesh

In want of emotion and the destruction of the feelings created

beyond the questions of meaning or individual interpretations

A cavern of retreat for the cheapest of souls

Blocking out all light with an overwhelming sense of dread

No fire ablaze to guide the wanderers, lost and searching for

an escape within the darkness

Desperately feeling their way into the…

The Other Side, Poetry by Patsy Jawo

WILDsound Festival

Genre: Rhyme, People

The Other Side
by Patsy Jawo

There is good inside me
And I have learnt to show it
There is beauty inside me
And I have learnt to accept it
There is love inside me
And I have learnt to share it

Good people fill this world
And I now attract them
Great experiences await
And I now explore them
Abundance is my birthright
And I have claimed it all

Beauty all around me
Clearer than the dawn light
Power lies within me
Awaits my awareness
Amazing things are found
If only I seek them

Make of this what you will
Your reality thus
Not because it is true
So it is just to you
For your world you create
Your state of mind dictates

Immense freedom of choice
Always you have a voice
To influence within you
That which is without you
Right now with no…

Pain Gain, Poetry by Patsy Jawo

WILDsound Festival

Genre: Life, People

Pain Gain
by Patsy Jawo

Stomach twisting pain
Surely death has come
I am alive
But how come

Brought me down
To my knees
Another reminder
Human mortality
Just how fragile
I am humbled

To feel pain
Is to be alive
To not thrive
Is to die
Life is the gain
From pain and strife

Momentary pain
How long this moment
Times of happiness
Periods of sorrow
It’s all or nothing

A big part of us
These emotions take
To remind of life
Not to define us
To wake our feelings
Not kill our being

I focus hard
Away from grief
That I may find
A helping hand
And come through this

Tis my journey
This my learning
My slice of life
To feel this gripe
Tis my yearning
To see this through

Find myself
Know myself
Grow myself
Through the pain
And the gain
Love my…

The Coin, by Patsy Jawo

WILDsound Festival

Genre: Life, Society

The Coin
by Patsy Jawo

Over the hills, mountains and valleys
Lies beauty untold and mysteries unsolved
That which is only wondered about
As where things are pure, good and great
A place yearned for like a distant land
Only to be reached in the afterlife

In these cities, towns and villages
Are sights to behold, discover, treasure
That which there is never time to explore
And is here now and waiting to be seen
Experiences to be savoured, cherished
This life, the other side of the same coin

That which is near can also be afar
For distance is a creation of mind
Expressed as matter, so solid and real
Beauty is never here nor there, just is
Always can be appreciated
Enjoyed, visited, imagined, beheld

Life is neither before or after, just is
Laughter and love to be seized in the now
The now of…

Sacred, Poetry by Patsy Jawo

WILDsound Festival

Genre: Relationship, Love

Sacred
by Patsy Jawo

When you left I thought it was for good
Now I know you reside in my heart
On your anniversary I always sulked
Now I choose to wear bright colours
How dare I be so selfish?
Where was my gratitude?

I spent two years in a mental flood
Because of my own lack of control
I cried and begged for you to stay with me
I let others lead me
Not knowing all along you carried me
Indulged me and awaited my understanding

I was so hung up on losing you
I forgot to celebrate the great times we shared
I always knew there was a reason for you in my life
Little did I know I would have you only for seasons
You are my reason to smash my goals
Over and over, one by one, I smash them

Now I realise…
